Dataview Calendar: First week day

Hi everyone,
I have a simple dataview calendar query:

FROM #event

And the result:

I have 2 problem with it.

  • How can I get rid of the second calendar?
  • How can I start the week from Monday?

I’m sorry if this is a answered questions, but I don’t find in this forum.

Do you find it in DataView’s documentation?

I don’t find in the documentation. :smiling_face_with_tear:

Oh jeez, I didn’t even notice it was a duplicate month! I thought it was just showing 2 months. :see_no_evil:

Thank you for your link.
I see this issue maybe fixed. fix: calendar can appear twice #1839
Do you know when this will viewable to the public?

Sorry, I wasn’t clear enough.

Still questioning: How can I start the week with Monday?
(My system is iPadOS 16.4.1a - Language and Region UK - and Obsidian 1.4.4)

I don’t know how Dataview handles this, but using the Calendar plugin you can choose what day your week starts on.

You would think a simple thing, but seems fairly complicated and connected to your region, OS language, and individual plugin/app settings.

What does the main iPadOS settings interface show for:

Settings > General > Language & Region > First Day of Week?

Unfortunately I don’t use the Calendar plugin.

I set it and restart the Obsidian, but don’t working.

Oh, no.

Does the main calendar app on iPadOS show the weeks as starting on Monday?

If not, does it change if you reboot the iPad?

If yes, I am out of ideas, other than installing the separate calendar plugin in Obsidian and seeing if the settings that offers can force Dataview to display as you want.

Good luck.

EDIT: Is Obsidian set to use English?

Might be worth a bug report / feature request on DataView’s GitHub.

You right. If I install the Calendar plugin, set the “Start week on:” to Monday, reload the page and showing the Monday first day.

I did it:


0.5.56, released yesterday, appears to have fixed calendar duplication (at least in my local tests).

[Mod edit because we can only mark 1 solution: Answer to second question, how to start week on Monday]

Yes, I can confirm, the duplication fixed on my iPad.
